Going Local with Drupal 8 on Pantheon in Vlad
So I wanted to see what the difference was between using vlad for drupal 8 vs drupal 7.
I set up a Drupal 8 Site on pantheon, cloned the repo as I usually would with a Drupal 7 install on pantheon.
Cloned in the latest version of Vlad, and setup the
vlad_guts/vlad_settings.yml file as usual, but did add
use_host_id: true to the bottom as I usually do to allow ssh passthrough.
Copied down the database and files from the Pantheon environment.
Then I moved
sites/default/settings.local.php and added in a hash and the database info.
Then to use
drush 8 I updated it inside of
vagrant ssh, with the install instructions @ Drush Install.
You can run
drush --version to see the version that you are now currently running.
I was able to run
drush cr and
drush uli without issues at this point, and the site was working locally.
Be sure to run
drush alone to see the updated drush commands if you’re not used to them.
